The vibrant and diverse artistic talents of Gloucester County's senior citizens will be showcased at the highly anticipated Gloucester County Senior Citizen Art Show opening on July 3, 2023 at The Dr. Ross Beitzel Art Gallery at Rowan College of South Jersey's Gloucester Campus located in the College Center. This annual event celebrates the power of creativity and highlights the remarkable works of art created by the county's senior artists.

The Gloucester County Senior Citizen Art Show promises to be a delightful experience for both artists and art enthusiasts alike. With an exceptional array of mediums and styles on display, visitors can expect to be captivated by the depth, skill, and unique perspectives expressed in each piece.

This year's event will feature a curated collection of paintings, sculptures, ceramics, textiles, photography, and mixed media creations, all crafted by talented senior artists from the Gloucester County community. The artists have poured their hearts and souls into their work, channeling a lifetime of experiences, emotions, and creativity into their masterpieces.

The Gloucester County Senior Citizen Art Show is a testament to the incredible artistic vitality that can be found within our senior community. Through their passion and dedication, these artists continue to inspire us all and remind us that creativity knows no age limits. The art show also serves as a platform to recognize and honor the immense talent that often goes unrecognized, showcasing the invaluable contributions of our senior citizens to the cultural fabric of our society.

This year's event will not only provide an opportunity for the public to admire and purchase the artworks but will also include an awards ceremony to honor the outstanding achievements of the participating artists. Esteemed judges will carefully evaluate the submissions and select winners across various categories, acknowledging excellence in technique, composition, innovation, and overall artistic impact.
